Demo Participants: ?
GENI-VIOLIN's goal is to build an In-network suspend and resume infrastructure for GENI experiments. This project is part of the GENI-alpha plenary session for GEC9. Current GENI experiments cannot be suspended/resumed, and often have to be restarted from beginning, if failures occur in the infrastructure. GENI-VIOLIN solves this problem, by providing "live snapshot" capability to GENI experiments running in GENI slices for fault tolerance, debugging and slice management. GENI-VIOLIN provides the suspend/resume functionality to GENI experiments, with minimal disruption to application performance, while being completely transparent to the application and guest operating systems. During GEC9, we will show suspend/resume functionality that is completely in the network by exploiting Openflow. GENIVIOLIN requires minimal hypervisor support from the end-hosts. We will show a demo of suspend/resume over two sites (Utah and BBN Emulabs) that are geographically separated. Affiliation(s): ?


Demo Participants: ?
We demonstrate the feasibility of multipath TCP from the application level with the support at the network level. The network routes packets based on destination address and last bit of the destination port #. Packets destined to odd and even port numbers are guaranteed to take disjoint paths. With this support, applications can interact using two TCP sockets that establish connections to an odd and even port, thus increasing the end-to-end throughput. The application layer is responsible for splitting and merging the traffic among the different TCP streams, while the individual TCP streams are responsible for reliable transport within the stream.

Demo Participants: Joe Mambretti, Maxine Brown, Thomas A. DeFanti
iGENI GEC 9 Demonstrations The iGENI dynamic network provisioning demonstrations showcase capabilities for large scale (national and international) multiple domain dynamic provisioning, including L1/L2 path involving multiple sites, using specialized signaling and implementation techniques. Dynamic Provisioning for the iGENI Cluster D Network In partnership with RENCI (Renaissance Computing Institute), Duke University, the University of Massachusetts, and other D-Cluster participants, iGENI Consortium has implemented the Open Resource Control Architecture (ORCA) control framework at the StarLight?? international exchange facility and it is supporting a demonstration of flexible, programmable heterogeneous networking among multiple national and international sites, including dynamic path provisioning. Several iGENI demonstrations will showcase this dynamic provisioning. Highly Scalable Network Research TransCloud?? Prototype This multi-organization TransCloud?? demonstration showcases a capability for using dynamic large scale cloud and network infrastructure for highly distributed specialized capabilities among multiple sites connected by the iGENI network, including digital media transcoding and streaming to multiple edge platforms, supported by scaleable cloud computing and network provisioning.

OpenFlow Campus Trials at University of Wisconsin

Demo Participants:" Aditya Akella, Perry Brunelli, Hideko Mills, Theo Benson, Mike Blodgett
Offloading is a widely proposed solution for coping with the increased demands emerging mobile applications place on these resource constrained defines. However, existing systems have not been widely adopted because (i) they lack mechanisms to ensure data privacy, and (ii) they pay little attention to the decision of where to offload. We have developed an enterprise framework to opportunistically leverage available computational resources and offer both security guarantees and performance/energy improvements to smartphone users. Our demonstration showcases our central controller which assigns offloading tasks based on resource availability and an administrator specified security policy. We show security is maintained and available resources are maximally leveraged.
